There is no "hes a wrestler/a power puncher and so is that guy so they are interchangeable." Not even close. The only real similarities a fighter can have are his stance, his takedown techniques, and his power hand.
There is so much fail in this post and not a nugget of truth to be found. Plenty of fighters fight similarly. The regional circuits of mma, boxing, kickboxing, and muay thai are full of them. It has a simple reason: everyone starts with the same basics. It takes either an unusual base or an unorthodox mind to establish a truly unique fighting style of which there are very few in mma.
*Lyoto. Anderson. Aldo. Korean Zombie. Maybe a few others. Most fall into basics because the basics work. That's why they are the first things drilled into your head. A fighter's individual quirks are easily analyzed. Three days to a week for most barring the few unique fighters.
I don't know if you have ever fought but if you did someone filled your head with a lot of nonsense.
*I'm not saying that these are the best fighters but they're just the first 4 with unique styles to come to mind.
